Has anyone seen this condition?
Engine suddenly reverts to idle and will not accept any acceleration.
Try to accelerate and cylinders cut as though no petrol and reverts to perfect idle.
Occured shortly after booting it in 2nd.
Warning lights: EML and traction control icon

A code read might be best, but it reads like the wheel sensor(s) for the traction control have failed?
